The purpose of preventing the passed-object dummy from having the VALUE
In the model where invoking a tbp is sending a message to the (passed)
object (dummy), it makes no sense for it to send the message to an ephemeral
copy of the object.
In some other conceptual models, this would just be a useless and
potentially harmful frill.
